Straylight Run - A Slow Descent lyrics
Cynical and broken, but wiser.
Heavy with a sense of resentment,
but i used to be so much different,
I used to have so much faith
when I started.
You knew that I always meant it.
I knew I could make a difference,
I struggled to be heard
and then finally, one day people started listening.
and I knew it
but as soon as it began it was ruined.
A slow descent from unique to routine,
over and over,
"just do it again and this time with feeling".
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/straylight-run/straylight-run/a-slow-descent.html]
The focus on the friends and the feelings.
That made those stupid songs all worth singing.
And don't you say a word
unless you're pretty sure that you want it analyzed.
So we drove
for what seemed like days
and four lane highways.
We said all we had to say
and I realized in time that it didn't mean anything.
not ever again.
Not like that.
"It's only a matter of time".
